Diagnostic Imaging

Diagnostic Imaging

Much of the cutting-edge work carried out at the RVC would not be possible without the specialist expertise and world-class facilities of our Diagnostic Imaging Service.  When imaging of any kind is required, cases are assessed using the most up-to-date equipment in the UK.

Service information

Specialists within our service are at the forefront of research into all aspects of small animal diagnostic imaging and also at the heart of the clinical work within the Queen Mother Hospital for Animals.

We have two computed radiography suites; one for routine veterinary radiography and the other for specialist techniques, including myelography and angiography. Our MRI suite uses a 1.5 Tesla magnet and we have a multi-slice CT scanner as well as a state-of-the-art gamma camera which enables a full range of scintigraphy.

 

Radiographic interpretation service

We offer a mail-in radiographic interpretation service for vets. Veterinary practices can email or post radiographs with a brief history of the case to the Diagnostic Imaging Service, which will provide a written report by fax on the day the radiographs are received. 



The Diagnostic Imaging Service supports Clinical Services across the hospital

Cases are assessed by our team of specialist radiologists, using the most up-to-date equipment
